DISMISS THE PRESIDENT
EMILY DAWES MUST GO
Thank you for your suggestion, and apologies for the length of time it has taken to conclude this You Make Change.
The Students' Union has always been clear that we do not support Emily's comment in question as we recognise that it was deeply insensitive and inappropriate. Following on from the incident, SUSU carried out an internal investigation into whether there was a breach of our HR policy at which point Emily made the decision to resign from her post. Unfortunately due to the confidential nature of these proceedings this is all I know and this is also all I am legally allowed to disclose. We will always challenge extremist or inflammatory language where we find it, in line with our rules and procedures.
If you have any further concerns regarding this please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Steve Gore, Acting President

Thank you for your submission, due to an ongoing HR process, we were unable to publish this You Make Change. Now that the process is concluded, and in the interest of transparency we will publish this and allow our usual processes to take place.
